The first foal by TDN Rising Star Caracaro (Uncle Mo–Peace Time, by War Front) was born at Dr. Gilberto Lopez Giraluna farm in Ocala, Florida Friday. The colt is out of unraced Real Ruffian (Ghostzapper), dam of stakes-placed First Illusion (Plan). The Ontario-bred mare is a half to Grade III winner Temporary Saint (Awesome Again).
Caracaro was given Rising Star billing in his second start when winning by six lengths going a mile at Gulfstream before finishing runner-up in the GIII Peter Pan S. at Saratoga. In his final career start, he finished second behind GI Belmont S. winner Tiz the Law in the GI Runhappy Travers S. He entered stud in 2021 at Crestwood Farm and is standing the 2022 season for $6,500 Live Foal (S&N).
